ABSTRACT

It is known that the prescription is an instrument that contains valuable information for the correct use of medicines and prior knowledge of the forms of use is necessary in the dispensation of antimicrobials. The irrational use of these drugs promotes resistance to microorganisms and inefficiency in treatment. With the rampant use in recent years, the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) created the Collegiate Board Resolution (RDC) 20/2011 with the need to facilitate the dispensation and control the consumption of antimicrobials. The objective of the work was to analyze the prescriptions of antimicrobial drugs retained in a commercial pharmacy in the South Region of Palmas-TO. Featuring a cross-sectional descriptive study where prescription items were obtained, such as: prescription by generic name; absence of signature, stamp, data and legibility problems. The results showed that the number of prescriptions and the frequent use of antibiotics can cause a public health problem. That is why it is important to make both patients and health professionals aware of greater control and compliance with the importance of the need and quality of the prescription.

Keywords: Antimicrobials, Prescription, Dispensing.
